About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Not Like Any Other Cottage. This place feels like your own second home. Check out the reviews. This house is a great deal, close to everything: golf, surfing, beach, sound, fishing, great restaurants, a clubhouse and swimming pool. Two bedrooms each with a queen bed - one has a half bath attached, the other a sitting area and work space. Renovated and updated with original art works, stained glass and wood floors. Open floor plan is great for entertaining with the dining area with a table that opens to seat 12 that is open to the bar area, kitchen, and living room. A sitting area on the sunporch is the perfect place to get away to read, relax and have your morning coffee. You will feel right at home watching the HDTV or sitting on the deck having a refresher. So bring your friends, check in and relax. You'll love watching the sunset over the sound glowing through the large full wall of windows. Mediterranean flair with a little beach decoration. Treat yourself to a fantastic cottage with all amenities including a Keurig coffee machine, microwave, dishwasher, two televisions, internet access and a Wii. Relax because towels and bed linens are included along with dishwashing liquid, toilet paper and paper towels. This is an easy house to settle in and enjoy.

About Ann Rodgers

High School English Teacher 20 years. Love to bike, eat at the local restaurants and refurbish furniture. I also like to use glass and tile in creating new works as well as paint. Traveling around the world is a dream of mine so I actively participate in travel experiences taking my students with me whenever possible.

Ann Rodgers purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Ann Rodgers chose Outer Banks

The sunsets are incredible. The neighborhood is quiet. Close to everything. I came to the Outer Banks to regroup and it has been refreshing. I met my boyfriend here and am so glad that this is the place of our early memories.

What makes this cottage unique

Small beach at the end of the street, Canal in the back for crabbing and fishing, quiet street with wonderful neighbors, within miles of two of the best restaurants on the Outer Banks. House is set up just like a home away from home. You will be enveloped in happiness. Close to everything.

Guestbook comments from the owner

All of the guests who have stayed in the house since I posted it on VRBO have been outstanding. My guests leave the house almost as clean as when they received it and have respected all my little dodads that are in the house. I appreciate their kindness and their welcoming comments. I look forward to renting the house out to all of them again. Thanks.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This beach cottage is truly a gem!! The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook a nice meal. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room to hang out. Plenty of room for 6 (two bedrooms and a pull-out sofa). The whole house was very clean and comfy. The location was very ideal and quiet, yet close to grocery stores, shopping, attractions, and of course, the beach!! We had a wonderful stay and definitely would like to come back again!!

Welcoming and comfortable house that is great for small family!

  • 5 of 5

I was so grateful to find a house that would rent nightly instead of weekly only. Also, not having to bring our own linens, hand soaps, toilet paper, paper towels, dish soaps, etc. was very nice. The beach chairs and boogie boards provided were also a hit! The house is small but was a good size for our family of four. However, I would not recommend it for families with toddlers. Our three year old did pretty well, but there are a lot of small things for little ones to get into if you don't keep an eye on them! There are also low hanging decorations/art that toddlers/kids could easily mess up if not supervised. You also have to be careful outside because of the canal in the backyard. And just a heads up (but certainly not a deal breaker): The hospital helicopter takes off and lands a couple times a day/night. It is loud but it's also pretty neat to see. It flew directly over us one night, but thankfully didn't wake up the kids. :) They loved seeing it in the daytime though! So, overall, we loved the house! I would just be prepared, if you have small kids, that there are lots of things for them to get into! But we do hope to stay here again! You can tell that the owner wants guests to feel like it's their house while staying. And we did!

Colorful and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. From the bright colors throughout the house to the beautiful landscaping to the sound view while having meals, there was little this house could have done to be more perfect. The outside shower was nice, clean, and had warm water to rinse off our feet before going inside. Not having to bring towels or sheets was a bonus. Sadly, no crabs were caught during our time with the crab traps, maybe next time. Thank you Ann for opening up your beautiful home and having it nicely stocked.

Relaxing stay in a cosy welcoming setting

  • 4 of 5

We arrived after a long day of drive and the 2 ferries from Cedar Island to find a nice "warm" and colorful interior that made us at ease right away. A little French touch I would say. Teens relaxed while we grabbed some food at conveniently close grocery store. Celebrated birthday there and Ann was very helpful in suggesting choices, reading well our preferences and we ended up having a great dinner. Perfectly situated for our first stay on the Outer Banks. Quick access to beach on each side as well as Wright Brothers site. Only reason for not a 5 was hot place at 80F that took quite a while to cool off with A/C and broken outdoor shower that was going to be repaired. Anyway, we would stay there again for sure!

Owner's Response: Shower repaired. Weather this time of year fluctuates so it's difficult to determine heat or cooling settings. Will consider revising the setting as it was recommended by our maintenance people. Glad the rest of your short stay was Nice.
